|There there, Bernie...there's always the Vermont primary.|
CNN, at the last minute, threw in an Iowa town hall that will air tonight starting at 9pm. It's not really a debate, however:
Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont will appear first, followed by ex-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and then former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CNN announced Monday. Each will have 30 minutes onstage at Drake University's Sheslow Auditorium and will face questions from audience members as well as CNN Anchor Chris Cuomo.Let me be honest with you...I don't think I can take 30 straight minutes of O'Malley. And I'll catch Sanders on YouTube tomorrow perhaps. But I will be watching Clinton tonight in the second hour and you can follow along on Twitter!
As for where the Iowa race stands, Nate Silver's esteemed 538 site now gives Hillary an 80% chance to win thanks to a Fox News poll that was just released tonight:
